Dear President Obama,
Remember the boy who was picked up by the ambulance in Syria. Can you please go get him and bring him to our home. Park in the driveway or on the street, and we will be waiting with flags, flowers and balloons. We will give him a family and he will be our brother. Catherine, my little sister will be collecting butterflies and fireflies for him. In my school, I have a friend from Syria – Omar. I will introduce him to Omar, and we can all play together. We can invite him to birthday parties and he will teach us another language. Since he won’t bring toys and doesn’t have toys, Catherine will share her big blue stripy white bunny. And I will share my bike and I will teach him how to ride it. I will teach him addition and subtraction in matric.
Six Years Old
This is what a six-year-old boy from New York has written to US President Barack Obama. He wants to adopt the Syrian boy Omran Daqneesh whose shocking images went viral in August after surviving airstrikes in the war-torn city of Aleppo.
President Obama was moved by this letter from a six-year-old boy, and he praised him at the UN Leaders’ Summit on Refugees.
“He teaches us a lot. The humanity that a young child can display, who hasn’t learned to be cynical, or suspicious, or fearful of other people because of where they are from, or how they look, or how they pray. We can all learn from Alex,” President Obama said.
